6:20pm
around. it's been a nice dry run and warm run during the day. that changes as this system movers in. we'll see the full cloud cover out there. we see showers now or light sprinkles showing up out here by point arenas. that system will move in in the next hours. it breaks up the dry pattern and that starts things going. so we crack the doors open for these storms to come in. it gives you an opportunity. that ridge of high pressure wasn't budging. now it's budging so it gives you more opportunities down the road. temperatures down the road are a little mild. a nice milder evening out there in the morning it's not frosty. it's not icy it's just kind of not bad. so as the kids go off to school you head to work. you're not going to be bundled up with hoodies and gloves. temperatures begin to cool a little bit as we go down the way. our first order of business is this weather system. not a big deal. but it's going to come in here
6:21pm
about late afternoon tomorrow. it'll have a bit of an impact into the late afternoon and evening hours. rainfall accumulations by the model. this doesn't mean this is what's going to happen but you get the idea that it's not a rain producerment that's .18. a light weather system, a light rain accumulation. but when it falls in the afternoon it could have an impact on the late afternoon commute. maybe a little on the thursday morning commute as well. here's where we are right now. the computer model 4:00 a.m. tomorrow you get a look at this. light scattered showers. around 8:00 it's more pronounced. that looks like the main event, between 7:00 and 11:00. you see the cloud cover on thursday. then you see friday it starts to clear out a little bit. but as we head into the weekend you saw the next system out
6:22pm
over my shoulder so there's another one working its way in. like i say things are starting to move a little bit now. the forecast highs tomorrow despite the clouds despite the sprinkles they are still in the 60s and low 50s. you see the weekend there, that's going to change. now you come back at 10:00 and you see the latest model. saturday and sunday it might go a little bigger than the slight chance. it's opening the door. >> more rain could be coming for the weekend. >> it might be more significant. protesters now inside a packed meeting in oakland where a former police chief is being considered as a consultant. we will update you on the hearing. >> also -- >> right now this is all an empty lot but soon work will begin on a new amphitheater right here on san francisco's embarcadero. the reason it's coming to town. >> those stories and more on tv 36. the deer just won't leave. the controversy over how to
6:23pm
deal with a growing number of deer damaging a san jose neighborhood. well, well, well.

[ male announcer ] get u-verse tv with a total home dvr included free for life. only $29 a month for six months. rethink possible.
6:25pm
a san jose retirement community that is overrun with deer is taking action. deer have been a part of the
6:26pm
gated villages community in the hills for many years. in 2007 the community rejected a proposal to kill some of those deers with bows and arrows. since then the population has grown to 250. so coming up next week, the deer will be tranquilized and taken outside of the community. when you consider the credibility of the source it's really hard not to believe. the source is tim brown who played with that man, callahan. he was the coach back in 2002 when they went to the super bowl. brown says that callahan sabotaged the raider in that
6:27pm
super bowl by changing the team's entire game plan just two days before the super bowl game itself. highly unusual, corroborated jerry rice as a matter of fact. why would he do such a thing? well supposedly because he was a close friend with john gruten who coached tampa bay the team that clobbered the raiders on that day. callahan actually hated the raiders says brown. the team that he coached. that was a bad day in raider history. and the maloof brothers have eventually put together a deal that will send the kings to seattle. but if you know anything about johnson he is not easily changed in his opinions. he wants the team to stay in sacramento. he approached supporters with his own plan for the team to
6:28pm
stay in the capital. >> my goal is to get 13 people to come in at a million dollars. in three days we got 19 people to come in at $1 million. >> there still is hope and as yogi bear said it's not over until it's over. they may remain the sacramento kings after all. long way to go. >> yeah. >> that's the sporting life and you'll be happy to hear the sharks will play tonight. >> we were there last week when protest erupted in a hearing on whether to hire a consultant. we'll have a live update on the city council debate. >> and thank you for trusting ktv you -- ktvu channel 2 news. we are always here for you on ktvu.com and mobile ktvu.
